Re: Interesting blog on younger people not connecting with older movie

Well, I can definitely see it, as I have a hard time connecting with black & white movies, in a similar way that I don't have the same kind of connection to a movie that my parents have if it's closer to their era than mine. A lot of it has to do with having a connection with the culture of the time. If something is too far removed from their circle of familiarity, then then engagement isn't as profound, especially if there's a strong tie to culture and technology of the times, but that normally isn't the case with sci-fi as technology is made up. And the thing about the early Bond movies is that they're very much a product of their times.
